Item 8.01      Other Events

Merriman Curhan Ford (the "Firm") announced today that in addition to the
previous matters set forth in the Form 8-K filing made on May 29, 2008, three
civil cases have now been filed by third-party lenders against the Firm, William
Del Biaggio III and a former retail broker of the Firm. The lenders allege that
Mr. Del Biaggio defaulted on multi-million dollar loans obtained from these
lenders. The complaints further allege that the broker, while still employed
with Merriman Curhan Ford, signed account control agreements purporting to
pledge various retail client stock accounts as collateral for the Del Biaggio

Merriman Curhan Ford has determined that if the broker signed these agreements,
he was not authorized to do so, nor was he permitted to pledge any assets in
those accounts for loans by third parties to Mr. Del Biaggio. The law suits
filed to date seek damages in excess of $17 million. The Firm anticipates that
additional claims will be asserted against it by Mr. Del Biaggio's lenders.
Merriman Curhan Ford has notified the 10 clients whose accounts could have been
affected by the unauthorized use of their account information.

Merriman Curhan Ford is not aware of any loss actually suffered by any of its
clients and has taken additional measures to safeguard these assets on behalf of
its clients. Merriman Curhan Ford intends to vigorously defend the allegations
made against it and believe the claims have no merit.

Merriman Curhan Ford has terminated the employment of the broker who previously
had been suspended, effective June 4, 2008. The Firm continues to cooperate with
the Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Attorney's Office
in San Francisco in their investigations.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
